New Delhi: Delhi Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal will visit few rain-hit villages to estimate the damage incurred to the crops and is expected to announce relief for the farmers.
“Farmers have suffered huge losses due to recent rains. Will visit a few villages n meet them to see how govt can help them,” he said in a Tweet this morning.
Kejriwal is scheduled to address a public meeting at Mundka in West Delhi later today.
A delegation of farmers had met Kejriwal yesterday and urged him for a survey of crop losses due to untimely rains and compensation according to its findings.
The chief minister had assured all possible help to the affected farmers.
“The government will do more than what the farmers expected from the government. We will fulfill all the promises made. Some might take time, while some would be announced very soon,” he had told the farmers delegation.
The compensation for farmers was also demanded during the budget session of Delhi Assembly by AAP MLAs Devendra Sehrawat and Naresh Balyan.
